(WBIR - Jefferson City, TN) Carson-Newman University has released designs for the Front Row Motorsports #35 Ford Fusion, which will be featured at Saturday's Bristol night race. The Sprint Cup car will be driven by Front Row's Josh Wise.
"We are very excited about this unique opportunity that specific University donors and Front Row Motorsports have afforded us," said Carson-Newman President Randall O'Brien.
Front Row is owned by Dandridge resident Bob Jenkins.
"To be able to partner with Mr. Jenkins and his organization in showcasing Christian higher education on a national stage - well, it just doesn't get much better than that," O'Brien said.
"One of the most gratifying parts of running a Sprint Cup team is bringing new partners into the sport," said Jenkins. "And when it's an organization as respected as Carson-Newman, it's even better. Throw in that it's one of the biggest races of the year and that's going to make it a pretty special weekend."
The Front Row car will also highlight several area C-N supporters including Knoxville's Ted Russell Automotive Group and Premier Building Maintenance Corporation, as well as Oak Ridge's Denton Financial Group.
